plaid recon top This week’s tute features an adorable top made from a plaid button down shirt. Mickermoodles shows you how to take a boring thrifted shirt and turn it into something adorable, perfect for the warm days of summer!

This idea is very versatile. Besides plaid, thrift stores are chock full of adorably patterned and solid shirts just begging for a new life as a cute summer top. Why not pick up a few and save them from their thrifty prison, and get yourself a fab new wardrobe at a bargain price? Thanks to Mickermoodles for her great tute!

If you make one of these lovelies for yourself be sure to post it! We love to see your work!

If you have a favorite tute you would love to see on Tute Tuesday, send Batgirl a PM and I’ll check it out!

    wow, you totally read my mind!! I recently re-discovered this awesome (too big for me) button down that I’ve been hoarding (featured in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B24DuglhTxI&feature=channel_page)… so this is perfect for that project! YAY!
